Scotland at Night
Choral settings of Scottish poetry from Robert Burns to Alexander McCall Smith
These collaborations between noted 'Edinburghians' Alexander McCall Smith and Tom Cunningham appear on disc here for the first time, in a programme of Scottish poetry settings by some of today's leading composers. From the ethereal tenderness of Cunningham's Lullaby to the muscular angularity of Ronald Stevenson's Medieval Scottish Triptych, Laudibus responds with affection and athleticism to the expert direction of UK choral doyen, Mike Brewer.
Producer’s note: “It was not so sunny when we recorded Scotland at Night…On 3-5 January whilst Laudibus was in Colinton Parish Church in Edinburgh to record this collection, the boiler gave out! Anyway, I offered as much support to the ever-spirited Mike & his crew as I could from the Minister's office (things are quite plush in Colinton, and thankfully the heating system in the Minister's suite runs off a newer-fangled & more efficient boiler!). You would never know that these lush sounds were recorded in a sub-freezing environment!” Paul Baxter
“Laudibus and Mike Brewer are particularly good at creating vocal effects, meaning this programme is tailor-made for them. Their rich lower body of voices and silvery sopranos combine beautifully in So Deep, the rippling of Trout Loch is perfectly done, and they've had a good crack at the breathless excitement of Ceilidh” Charlotte Gardner, bbc.co.uk, 24th August 2009
